Art Auction for FBi Radio

More than 70 of Australia’s established and emerging artists join the auction line-up.

Words: Donnalyn Xu

FBi Radio’s first online auction will bring art from the web to your walls. The FBi Radio Digital Art Auction is an online fundraiser and silent auction that will raise critical funds for FBi Radio and the artists involved. As a not-for-profit community radio station, FBi Radio amplifies and shapes the cultural fabric of the Australian art scene.

The diverse line-up features more than 70 of Australia’s most exciting emerging and established artists (see full list below), including internationally revered Lindy Lee, pioneering artist Mike Parr who represented Australia at the Venice Biennale, mixed-media and installation artist Janet Laurence, and multi-disciplinary artist Jason Phu who had work commissioned by the Sydney Opera House and Campbelltown Art Centre last year.

Previous auctions by FBi Radio were held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in 2009, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in 2010, and the National Art School in 2018. In light of the COVID-19 restrictions, FBi Radio’s first digital auction hopes to make art collecting more accessible, with works available cross a range of prices. Attracting a mix of seasoned collectors, investors, and first-time art buyers, this year’s digital auction will once again be open to all.

Works will be available to bid on between 10am Monday 15 June – 7pm Friday 26 June.

The event will be held on their website.
